I am super excited to be guest designing for the CAS-ual Friday Stamps new release this month. Today and the next three days the design team will showcase the new gorgeous sets from the second CAS-ual Friday Stamps release and they are sweet enough to let me play along. The set being showcased today is called 8 Happy Nights. It’s a stylish and fun Hanukkah set! I couldn’t help myself and made two cards.

Both of my cards are CAS, both use Summer Sky Memento Ink for the background sentiment, and Paris Dusk Memento Ink for the darker blue ink.

My first card base is a piece of  3 1/2″ x 11 piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, folded in half.  A 3″ x 5″ piece of Solar White cardstock was stamped with a long sentiment stamp of that set in Summer Sky Memento ink. That layer was stitched to a slightly bigger dark blue Core’dination cardstock piece, before it was adhered to the card base.

The layout for this card is from the current sketch challenge form Operation Write Home. The sentiment was stamped on a 3 1/2″ x 3/4″ white cardstock strip in Paris Dusk Memento Ink.  The big star was stamped also in Paris Dusk ink, cut out and stitched to the upper left hand side along with a button and Linen Thread. A second, light blue button was stitched to the lower edge of that strip.

Two smaller stars were stamped around the buttons. Rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones strip finish off this card.

A 3″ square of Solar White cardstock was stamped with the same stamp and ink as the background for the first card. Again it was stitched to a slightly bigger piece of dark blue Core’dinations cardstock.  The layers were adhered to the card base, a 4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

The dreidel image was stamped in Paris Dusk Memento Ink  on white cardstock and cut out. Linen thread was tied around the handle and the image was adhered to the layer with foam adhesive squares.  The sentiment was stamped under the background layer. More Sleek Strip Rhinestones finish off the card.

Make sure you check the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp blog to see more samples created with the new set.  Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Hugs and smiles
